Lexus gave us the brand new IS500 and it got me thinking: Is this even a good idea?

  • Honestly though, the Lexus V8 sounds effeminate compared to the naturally aspirated 5.2L FLAT-PLANE crank V8 in the GT350R and it’s manual! In 40 years time, the GT350R will be a highly sought after classic, Lexus V8(automatic) not so much, but it’s RELIABLE....LOL.

  • Lexus is also the company that has made the LX570 J201 concept and the GXOR concept recently. Someone, somewhere in that company makes cool stuff. I'm glad they are letting them off the leash a bit more.

  • First off! The V6 Camry is a beast and the ultimate sleeper because no one expects it. No Camry bashing...The FKS is in the Camry, the FSE is in the IS. Different motor...but the ISF has been around forever so I am only impressed that they changed the name back to to AlphaNumeric. I’m a Toyota fan since the Supra days and the LS400 so I get mad when people say they’re slow or boring. They aren’t. Have never been!

  • With a magnificent V8 and rear wheel drive, it shouldn’t be called an IS 500 F-Sport. It should just be called the IS-F

    Clifton ChengClifton ChengPrije 2 dana
    • They can charge less by branding it as the IS500. Also if this is ONLY the IS500 then that means they could come out with a bonkers IS-F.

  • If you like Lexus and don't mind a used one, they are affordable and most reliable. I picked up an eight year old 2010 ISF for a bit over a third of the original price. The ISF is a sleeper, those not in the know thinks it's a FSport 350 or worse a 250.

  • I don't get it. How much is this "enthusiast car" worth? Dude, this is going to be a stratospheric price, it is a Lexus... A real "enthusiast car" is worth max 30k(€) and is designed to allows for easy aftermarket parts installation (space in the engine bay, few luxury interior parts, areas intended for drilling...). How much does this boat weight? Was it really necessary to have 4 tailpipes? In my opinion, this is a luxury car, not a tuner/enthusiast car and Lexus shouldn't advertise it as such. Let Toyota do the sport with GR and TRD and let Lexus do the luxury...
